Relax Like a Cat

My cat knows how to relax. He doesn’t consider it to be a life skill- it is just life. Often people call me to communicate with their animals about a certain subject. When I communicate with my cat on a daily basis it is usually about “nothing”. I tune into him and just enjoy thinking […]
